Ἥρη, Ἐλειθυιῶν μήτηρ, Ἥρη τε τελείη,
καὶ Ζεῦ, γινομένοις ξυνὸς ἅπασι πατήρ,
ὠδῖνας νεύσαιτ᾽ Ἀντωνίῃ ἵλαοι ἐλθεῖν
πρηείας, μαλακαῖς χερσὶ σὺν Ἠπιόνης,

ὄφρα κε γηθήσειε πόσις, μήτηρ θ᾽, ἑκυρά τε.
ἡ νηδὺς οἴκων αἷμα φέρει μεγάλων.

— Paton edition

Hera, mother of the Ilithyiae, and thou, Hera Perfectress, and Zeus, the common father of all who are born, hear my prayer and grant that gentle pangs may come to Antonia in the tender hands of Hepione, so that her husband may rejoice and her mother and her mother-in-law. Her womb bears the blood of great houses.
